Drink, Draw, Destroy

Art school heads to the bar at this special event. "Drink, Draw, Destroy" features 45-minute drawing lessons in our School and Studio led by teaching artist Jeriah Hildwine. Drink specials are on tap at our cash bar, sponsored by Chant Restaurant. And, while you peruse the two floors of galleries, a live DJ keeps the tunes playing all night.

Best of all, artist Conrad Freiburg is bringing a machine he calls the “SCUE” (Self-Contained Unit of Entropy) where visitors create their own small works of art, document them, then... destroy them. How cool is that?


Hyde Park Art Center is one of 10 Chicago Art Centers participating in the June 4 "What's Your Art?" Off-Air Series event. While you're there be sure to pick up the "What's Your Art?" validation card, then see how many Centers you can visit between now and June 4.  Prizes for those who visit 2, 4, 6, 8, or all 10!  Be sure to join us on June 4 for a culminating celebration involving all ten Centers, their art & artists, to learn more about the Art Centers of Chicago and how you can get involved.
